When there's a really catchy garage rock song out there that doesn't have a proper video on YouTube (i.e., not just a static image over the music, or god forbid, scrolling misheard lyrics in comic sans...this is where I step in. "Parties" is by Puberty, also known as Lars Finberg and Susanna Welbourne, also of the Intelligence. Lars is also also known as a member of Thee Oh Sees, A Frames, Wounded Lion, and I think KC & The Sunshine Band, but I need to check on that. Anyway, with the courtesy pilfering of educational films, James Brown in a ski sweater, some old home movies of strangers, an old folks' rockin' house party in Newfoundland, Canada, and some people from an unknown Asian country who really knew how to do a mean Jerk, WE HAVE NEW VIDEO! Please to enjoy, and please to purchase the 7" single at Telephone Explosion or digitally via your handy iTunes account.
